From Dairy'e' we sailed away on the 23rd of May

We were boarded by a pleasant crew all bound for Americ'a'

Fresh water there we did take on 5000 gallons or more

in case we ran short going New York far away form the shamrock shore


CHORUS

So fairly well sweet lies are dear and likewise to dairy town

and twice farewell to my Calrain boys who dwell on that sancted ground

If fortune it ever should favor me are I to have money in store

Ill go back and I wed the weee lassie I left on Paddy's green shamrock shore



We had sailed three days we were all sea sick, not a man on board was free

we were all confined into our bunks with no one to pity for me

no father kind or monther dear to lift up my head when twas soar

which made me think more of the lassie i left on paddy's green shamrock shore


CHORUS

So fairly well sweet lies are dear and likewise to dairy town

and twice farewell to my Calrain boys who dwell on that sancted ground

If fortune it ever should favor me are I to have money in store

Ill go back and I wed the weee lassie I left on Paddy's green shamrock shore



Well we safely reached the other side in three and twenty days

we were taken as passengers by a man and lead round in six different ways

we each of us drank a parting glass in case we might meet no more

and we drank a health to old Ireland and paddy's green shamrock shore



CHORUS

So fairly well sweet lies are dear and likewise to dairy town

and twice farewell to my Calrain boys who dwell on that sancted ground

If fortune it ever should favor me are I to have money in store

Ill go back and I wed the weee lassie I left on Paddy's green shamrock shore


So fairly well sweet lies are dear and likewise to dairy town

and twice farewell to my Calrain boys who dwell on that sancted ground

If fortune it ever should favor me are I to have money in store

Ill go back and I wed the weee lassie I left on Paddy's green shamrock shore
